How to build a cocktail

Building a drink is simply pouring it right into the glass or cup in which it will be served. A soft drink, a whisky, a rum and coke, a Woo Woo: these are all built drinks.

Step 1: Pour ice in the glass

Step 2: Pour the ingredients over the ice in the glass


There is little dilution with built drinks.
